    Betty and Kaye,
    So sorry to hear about the passing of James. If there is anything we can do, let us know. I’m sure you have lots of good memories. We will have you in our prayers. My grandfather,Stokes, and James’ daddy were brothers. The Wiley Family

    I sure will miss ol’ James. He was very
    good to me over the years that I worked
    for him. He used to call me the
    “problem child” of Murray Machine.
